Thank you. To the Officers and Members of our branch, having been a member for approximately 52 years, I can say I have enjoyed all of it. It has always been a family friendly branch and still is.

V.C.C Marlborough Branch AGM Notice of Meeting This will be held on the
27th May 2018 In the Redman Room at
From the Blokes in the Shedâ€Ś What a busy month we've had in the shed. We were visited by firstly the Wolseley Car Club who were having a look around our province and spent a day on the Green. They had to have a look through our supermarket, with success all round. Then the Packard group visited a fortnight later and had a wonderful time going through our stuff. Both groups were very complimentary and envious of our set up. So there's a feather in the caps of the blokes after all the effort put in "thus far". So a big thanks to you blokes, just remember, all members are welcome to come along and join the fun in the Shed. It was very nice to have Gary Vercoe make an appearance recently after a torrid time post surgery. Good to see you up on your feet minus the crutches. Welcome back Gary. Cheers for now the Major.
Update from Your Social Convenor Quiet month in the kitchen this month, put on an afternoon tea for eleven residents from Waterlea resthome. They had a lovely time looking at the old cars, bringing back memories of when they were young and travelling on dirt roads. Our natter & noggin night was another enjoyable evening being a pot luck meal, amazing the lovely food that is supplied by everyone. Natter & Noggin for April is Friday 27th and it is Pea, Pie & Pud night $12.50 pp. Dale 10

My Honda CB360 Police bike project. By Ben Habershon The green bike in the photos is the Police bike which I will do in time but need to find some of the missing bits that are different to the other two. The dark blue one is the one I am working on and was orignally intended to be the parts bike for the Police CB360. The light blue one is the second parts bike and has the matching number motor out of the Police bike in it but no compression on the R/H cylinder. I am hopping it is a valve problem and not a piston because I have a spare cylinder head. I got the three CB360â€™s about 10 years ago from Karamea, where they had been sitting in an open shed for ten years prior to me getting them; since one droped a cylinder and the owner gave up on all three of them. Two trips from Christchurch to Karamea and back again in a slow van with a trailer; one to bring back a load of stuff as payment for the bikes and then one the following weekend to bring the bikes back finally saw them safely stowed in my garage. The things we do to save our projects. All this happened just before I bought my first house so they collected dust for another 10 years while house renovations took priority. Finished the house and was about to start the restoration of the Police bike, but life happened which saw another long road trip for the bikes on the back of a tailor, this time because I relocated from Christchurch to Blenheim. Finally I got to make a start on the Police CB360, the plan being to use the other two bikes as part bikes. The Police Bike was quietly sidelined however when I started
trying to get the parts bike (the dark blue one) to go. I thought I would use the motor for the Police Bike. The owner told me the dark blue bike was a runner and I found it was itâ€™s all there down to the tool kit and hand book â€“ too good to strip down and use for parts. So one project became two. At first all I was going to do with the dark blue bike was take the front brake off it and if I had not raided too much more from it by the time I had finish the Police bike, make it someone else's project . Oh how things change. So far I have got the dark blue bike running, albeit poorly. It took two to three weeks just to clean all the green gum out of the carbs. On one of my garage nights I cleaned and set the plugs and points, gave it 5 minutes of kicking and away it went. After three carb fulls of petrol it was going ok but dropping one cylinder below 3000rpm. By now it was getting late so I thought I had better stop before I upset the neighbours. That was back in October. 11
Life happened again and a leaking caravan which needed to be ready for a Christmas trip to Quinnyâ€™s Bush took all my motorbike restoration time. Christmas over and the Caravan temporarily fixed and I am back to the bike now. Most of the electrics are working but I still have to get it charging. I have unseized and got the front brake working and sourced a good set of forks for it and just yesterday found a brake caliper for the Police bike. At the moment, as well as spending too much time online looking for parts, I am working on the fuel tap and have the tank full of cider vinegar hoping it will clean all the gunge out. The plan from here is to get the engine on the dark blue bike running right and charging then go for a ride and make sure the gear box does every thing it should. Then it will be time to strip it down and start painting all the black bits, polish the alloy bits and hopefully find some better chrome, otherwise painting it till I have the money to have it re chromed. Once the Plolice Bike is on the road I plan to strip the motor down and check it out. If any one has any good guards, exhaust, head light rim, R/H side cover, wheels or rims and a L/H switch block for the Police bike I would be keen to buy them. Ben
NATIONAL MOTORCYCLE RALLY The organising committee is progressing steadily with the rally planning and the huge amount of associated tasks. The rally routes are all but finalised and our branch club captain has agreed to organise a trial run over one of the routes using our branch car owners to check for any anomalies. Anomaly, that’s another word for cock up. A request made at a recent Wednesday morning gathering for back up vehicles resulted in a good response from the branch members. One or two more may still be required. A considerable number of check point and other marshals will be required, please give it some thought. Glenn has overseen the design of several rally plaques one of which has been chosen and approved by our South Island club captain. Entrants will all get one in their rally pack. You will see it then. Tappit Hammer has been pulled out of retirement to write some articles for the rally book and Phil has obtained enough advertising to cover the cost of the book. Glenn almost has the entry form ready for head office approval and we hope to have it out for entrants in June. Zig and Colin have been planning the after - rally tour and almost have it under control after experiencing some frustrations. Carol and Glenn have already received requests for information from prospective entrants from the far north, the deep south and points in between. Some tentative interest has been shown from a group in Australia. Barry H is making check point and other signs and Damien will be doing some of the work on the trophy winner’s memento’s. Local members intending to enter the rally are again reminded you must have a V.C.C. vehicle identity card. The motorcycle section will be having a morning at the clubrooms on May the 20th. If one of our vehicle inspectors can get there and you have the paperwork done that would be a good time to bring your machine along for the inspection. If you hate paperwork someone will be on hand to help you do it. Likewise, prospective members could get the forms filled out to join up.
MOTORCYCLE EVENTS COMING UP Sunday May 20th April Sunday 15th Gather at the park 10.30 am Leave park at 11.am. for to tidy up the museum ride through to the Trout motorcycle display and do pub. any V.C.C. vehicle identity cards’ that may be ready. Ride to lunch venue at 12.30.
Sunday June 17th Garage run
Members driving home after the launch trip to Te Pura Bay were delayed on the outskirts of Havelock while the road was closed due to an accident. It was not apparent at the time that vehicle upside down belonged to two of our motorcycle sections members. Fortunately, they were not seriously hurt unlike their car which was written off. This is the second time this year motorcycle section members have been t-boned by someone driving through a give way. Have we offended Saint Christopher, the patron saint of travellers?
March Run A nice day produced a good turnout of bikes for the run up the Onamalutu to have a look at Don and Kaye’s Douglas restoration. We last saw this bike on a weekend run to Taperwara, since then Don has nearly completed the bike and had it running. Don’s bike is a prime example of what happened to many veteran and vintage bikes in the colonies, basically an engine and gearbox (if you were lucky) thrown into a bicycle frame, spindly forks and narrow beaded edged wheels, little or no brakes, suspension comprising of one of two fork springs, two seat springs and the thickness of your butt cheeks. With the gravelled potholed goat tracks comprising NZ’s road, the inbuilt fragility of early motorcycles was tested to the limit and beyond, when breaking point had been reached by either rider or bike, very rarely were they pushed into a shed to be found decades later. Economic hardship meant that many bikes, as Don’s was, were stripped of anything useable, engines, powered pumps and saw benches or were turned into compressors, wheels hooked to carts, gearboxes connected to winches and lathes, the rest disposed of over the nearest bank, the chance of reuniting the original bits unlikely. In Don’s case he managed to find the engine in one part of Marlborough and the original frame it came out of at the other end of the province and with perseverance has reunited enough bits
to rebuild the bike, no small task. After a ride back to Renwick for lunch it was round to Barry’s to view the Royal Enfield. It won’t be long before Barry will be able to emulate Kim Jong-un’s victory day parade with the amount of military bikes he has acquired, the Enfield being another, the opposite of Don’s bike, these were built chunky and have a look of solidness about them. In close to original condition, it certainly looks like it came directly off a WW2 battlefield, by this stage of the war all rubber was gone replaced by steel foot pegs and canvas hand grips, these bikes were made for a purpose and looking at the Enfield you can tell it wasn’t speed, what it could do was plug away all day and night with minimal maintenance in crappy conditions. Barry has done the bike a favour by rescuing it from the other side of the world and its rubbish weather and bringing it to Marlborough although he may have been perturbed by several offers to “Authenticate” it more with some strategically placed bullet holes. Thanks to Don, Kaye, Barry and Jill for having us round. On the restoration front things seem to be happening Paul has his engine for the ACE being attended to John had his recently finished 78 Bonneville out on the run and a longterm restoration by one member has entered road trials and has been turning heads around the district, that’s if your quick enough to catch a glimpse of it more on that later. Glenn
From the Editor My first piece of information concerns members of the local branch who attended the NZ AJS & Matchless Owners Register Inc Rally in Kaikoura in Early March, taking away awards were Mindy Chowhury, Steve Gaudin, Ross Hutchison, Viv Hutchison and Barry Hutchison. No small effort by any means. Well done to you all. It was quite some sight to see the number of motorcycles, of mixed parentage on our shed visits around kaikoura, a good chance that one or two will join the VCC as they have several older models and showed interest in attending the National Rally. As far as our AGM, I am prepared to continue as Editor unless someone else really wants to have a go, if so get in touch and I can go through whats required. Thank you again to my personal letter folder-and-deliverer’s - what I do would be wasted without all your efforts, very much appreciated. I know, I was told “nothing else on wheels this year…” but a Vintage caravan come along and well, long story short its been stripped back inside and out and once some window rubbers arrive the windows will join the taken out pile. The bonus side is the painter will be able to get it done reasonably quickly so theres a chance that I may bget to use it over the winter. As if I needed any more projects… by the way the trials car is taking form slowly more work once the speedway season end next week! Regards, Chris 15
